What's the recommendation for a small backpacking stove that will run well on gasoline? I'm trying to outfit my Jeep with some gear, but unfortunately there isn't much room in a jeep so I'd prefer to stick with gas as a stove fuel since I already have plenty of that on hand.

Personally, if you haven't used gasoline as a stove fuel before be VERY careful. I would recommend a safer fuel due to gasoline's tendency to flare really easily.

That said....two stoves I have used that can take gasoline include
-Coleman Peak 1 multifuel stove
- Primus Omnifuel multufuel stove

All multifuel stoves will take petrol, MSR, Primus and OPtimus all make good stoves.

just be very very careful priming and lighting your stove for the first time,

I have the Primus Omnifuel. I've never run it on gasoline, but I know that it can run it if need be. Obviously, the multifuel stoves may behave differently with different fuels, but they may also need to be configured differently - i.e. the Primus Omnifuel has different jets for different fuels. Make sure you are familiar with what settings may need to be changed when switching between fuels.

Don't know if it is "best" but the Coleman Dual fuel is a well made stove where parts are easily obtained and maintenance is also simple to perform.

Purchase of a used Coleman is less of a risk for the same reasons.

I always used (up to about 3 years ago) liquid fuel stoves. Any white gas stove will work for regular gasoline. I'm a huge fan of whisperlite, you can get the international version and it'll run on more fuels.
